  • Is She Done??

    We have a female that was bred last year late late in the season like near Aug/Sept. We figured that there was a certain time when they would breed and it was out of the time frame but we have learned ALOT since then. anyways it was her first breeding season first time being bred and the guy we got her from said she was RTB. Her weight was great and everything. She only layed 2 clutches one in Oct and another in Nov. and hasnt laided since. She is a hefty eater and healthy as can be. we have a humidifier in the tank. We are just wondering is that all she will lay from last season? or how do we know she is done? we continue have her laybox in her tank and she is separated from all the others so she has her privacy we just are wondering if she will lay more or if 2 clutches is all we are going to get from her?
    Thanks for looking Have a great day

    Here are the 2 hatchlings that has hatched Mo and GC (Georgia Clay)

    Mo front finger GC back


    Mo left GC right


    Mo is the one in front (hatched 1/25) and then GC is the smaller one (hatched 1/11)

    She has probably entered her cooling phase and will not give you anymore clutches until spring. Her body is following her natural breeding times. There is absolutely nothing wrong with pairing late in the season as long as you are alright with getting only a few clutches. The only thing you need to be mindful of is that females have been known to retain sperm for up to a year so come spring she may continue laying from that late pairing. Congrats on the babies!

      I agree, mine have all stopped producing eggs, I also have cooled them and they should start laying again when I warm them up.

        This may be a dumb question but how do you warm them up? like is with the amount of light they get or what? sorry for the dumb question its our first female that has laid.

          No worries, cooling refers to their winter cycle- colder temps and less light. If you are attempting to simulating summer conditions to get her laying again just remember that she will still need a break from laying and it can be difficult to cool them in the summer.
